Everywhere...

When we built our house almost four years ago, I started thinking about the yard right away. I wanted the gardens to looks like they had been here a while. I like wild landscaping much better than a perfectly manicured garden. I was amazed by all the daisies I saw growing that first summer. Every year there seem to be more and more sprouting up by the edge of the woods. Last year I dug up about ten daisy clumps and planted them in our gardens. I love them. They are wild, and spindly, and some of them are taller than my knees.








Lots of daisies to pick, bring inside and enjoy. They last forever. I love that.

So beautiful! I agree about a wild-looking garden vs. a manicured one. The shot of the two pitchers full of daisies is gorgeous! I love how they look wild inside the house, too.

Look at you - all bringing nature right to your front door and all. I love it!

Daisies are great like that, too, they take a transplanting like nothing and last forever when they're cut.

I'm just finding out the same thing about all the nasturtium in my yard and it's so fun.

I love wild looking gardens (and I can look out my windows and see them). And daisys are one of my favorites too.

Daisies are so pretty. Elegantly simple. I'm a rose girl, but can't get them to grow!
